Quilt Barns – of Old Mission Peninsula.

Its rather difficult to photograph the barns, some of them are a distance off the road and then of course there really isn’t anywhere to safely park the car. This barn was set on a hill of white spring daisies. I stopped by the mailboxes and walked to the road to get my shot. In the mean time, I was observed by a group of goats on the opposite side of the road, they ran up to the fence and gave me a ‘goat stare’ and an occasional bleat. I talked to them.

The Bayeux Discipline – my passion.

My discipline is that I’ve set myself the task to work for 10 hours a day on my Bayeux Project for seven days a week. Physically it’s demanding. Emotionally it’s exciting and to be really honest this quilt is completely different to the sample piece. Its 236 feet of sheer delight for me. Like many of you, I’m having a problem seeing the fine details so I have an appointment at the optician tomorrow.

I took my favourite section of a group of soldiers from the Bayeux quilt and we created a small appliqué quilt. I’m not sure how Stuart is going to appliqué his, so it will be interesting to see the finished quilts.
